Uncoated and Coated

Paper stock is either uncoated or coated. While there are many coating finishes, such as talc, as well as specialized uncoated paper, keep in mind that all reams of paper fall into one of these two main categories.

Uncoated paper is generally rougher compared to coated paper. It also tends to be more porous, making it absorbent.  Keep in mind that images printed on uncoated paper are softer and less crisp. 

Uncoated Stock

Uncoated stock of paper does not have any coated pigment. The pigment is applied to lower the absorbency or enhance the smoothness of the paper. As a result, inks tend to dry by absorbing into uncoated paper. Also, note that uncoated paper comprises a large number of paper types. You will find them in a variety of surfaces, including smooth and textured surfaces.

Coated Stock

Coated stock has a surface coating. The coating is applied to make the surface more conducive to the reproduction of images and text to achieve sharper detail while improving colour density. The main objective of coating the stock by adding a coated clay pigment is to enhance the smoothness and lower the absorbency.

A coated sheet keeps your printing from looking “fuzzy,” and it does this by restricting ink from absorbing quickly into the paper surface.

Also, a coated ream of paper is more opaque than uncoated sheets. As a result, it is better suited to two-sided printing without the risk of considerable bleed through from back side printing. We can categorize coated paper finishes as matte, cast, dull, gloss and high gloss.
